Why would these tools exclude the word "web"?

I was using the tools at http://www.googlerankings.com/dbkindex.php and I tried the "determine best keywords" and "keyword density" tools, but both tools don't mention the word "web" once, even though its used several times on my site. my site is http://www.mattmdesign.com. Does anyone know why they would exclude this word?
Thanks, Matt

Many density checkers attempt to remove common words (the, and, of), some times the words in the exclude list is very broad.

For the keyword density tool ... uncheck "Use our default stop word list" and try again.

You can see the words they chose to ignore by clicking on the link to their stop word list or the url below.
